The big Championship weekend - play-offs

The big Championship weekend - play-offs

Two play-off places in the Championship are up for grabs with either Stoke City or Hull City being joined by Bristol City and two from Watford, Crystal Palace, Wolves, Ipswich and Sheffield United.

Watford looked all over the league winners when they brushed aside the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena in October but the key man in that win, striker Marlon King is no longer at the club and his goals have been hard to replace.

Boss Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Three Counties Radio: "I'll know what the scores are at half-time and what the league table looks like.

"And I'll know what the table looks like at 70 minutes and 85 minutes, I've got somebody doing that for me."

Palace have stormed up the table since Neil Warnock took charge and the Eagles boss will be looking to keep his current side in the top six at the expense of former club Sheffield United.

The Blades must win at Southampton and hope other results go their way.

Ipswich have a similar scenario for their game with Hull while Wolves look the likeliest side to profit from a slip by either Watford or Palace as they face Plymouth at home.
